The Elysium Ensemble presents this recording of the Six Sonates by prolific French composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, the second in a series of releases based on research into historical performance practices from the Australian Baroque duo. Flutist Greg Dikmans and violinist Lucinda Moon continue their exploration of neglected and lesser known works, at once displaying Boismortier’s great depth and imagination on these duos.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
